Latin American Studies

Latin American Studies is an interdisciplinary minor that aims to help students make connections across different scholarly approaches to the region.

Students are encouraged to explore the diverse region through the study of culture, language, literature, history, music, and politics. Students minoring in Latin American Studies will develop knowledge about the multicultural nature of the region and its interactions with the global community, both past and present.

Students will achieve the goals of the minor by taking a set of courses on Latin America in at least three different departments across two divisions. Since language is essential to understanding any culture, a degree of proficiency is required in one of the region’s languages. Finally, minors will submit a final project on the region.

The College offers relevant Study Abroad Programs in Argentina, Brazil, Ecuador, and Peru.
